I know this is an old review but one of my favourites...

The 135i makes the Top 10: 2008 Dream Cars

Nice review on the new Z4, comparing to the 135i.

Also, Tarmac magazine just published 135i as one of the top drives of 2010.

Garage List
2008 135i  [3.00]
Clarkson - "Not everyone will have heard of The Road or its author. It’s a hidden jewel. It sits in the bookshops like the BMW 135i sits in the dealership: a genuine pearl, lost in a sea of razzmatazz and Day-Glo promises.

I like the BMW 135i very much. It has no styling and no big USP. It’s just some car. But it’s the most faithful BMW of them all. Simple. Six-cylinder engine up front. Rear drive. It’s built for the road. It is The Road."


Let's face it, the man knows cars. We should make him an honorary 1 Addict.

WindingRoad Review - MY2010 135i

A favorable review of the 1-series from Winding Road. Some of the comments, of course, are of the 'papal infallibility' style: I don't like it therefore nobody should. Egos out of control, I'd say.

Not sure if this has already been posted, but here's a great collection of tuned 135i videos.

April 2011 Consumer Reports; consumerreports.org

Best & Worst: The BMW 135i scored a 97. Second only to the Lexus LS 460L. The Porsche 911 Carrera S scored a 96 and the Corvette Z06 scored a 92. The 135i was the top sports cars: high performance winner with the 97 rating.wrx sti was second with a 89.
The 135i coupe also won the sports coupe "Most Fun" Driving enjoyment award.
Only real negative was in reliability. Must be the old fuel pump trouble.

I hope one of the major US magazines does a full comparison with the 135i and the 1M. I had a deposit for a 1M but with the old lease ending I bailed on it and got the 135i that I had also ordered. I agonized about holding off for the hot rod, but they both have the pluses and minuses. I am loving the 135i so no (few) regrets. GJ

Guess nobody is updating these? Most of them are still bad links.

Thanks from a newbie

For a new owner of a used 2011 135i cab, this is very helpful!
